Good morning all! I am such a bad blogger, I can never get the images down to a select amount as I always love just tiny differences in shots. So, this beautiful editorial is plentiful! Will beautiful soft natural tones, floaty ethereal fabrics and the back drop of a gorgeous location, Elisa captured it all magnificently. Providing tonnes of inspiration from styling legend Bijou Bride. This is a gorgeously romantic shoot and I hope you enjoy!

words | Bijou Bride & photography | Elisa Bricker

Elisa was one of the speakers at Snap Photography Festival and as part of her fine art workshop wanted to set up a styled shoot.  Fforest is such a magnificent natural space.  The owners have worked tirelessly to ensure that each element of the architecture and interiors feel part of their surroundings and authentic within the landscape.  We wanted the shoot to embody that feeling of effortless romance with design inspired by nature and the colours of the countryside.  Shades of grey and blue against the natural materials such as wood.  Dreamy florals sourced locally to compliment the delicate lace gowns.  With the table styling I didn’t want to over complicate the look, less can most definitely be more.  A silk runner to echo the movement of the grasses and wind in the trees.  Simple place settings but with stunning calligraphy paper goods that Julie Ha so cleverly made to look old.  Adding to that feeling of timelessness.  To me I think the final photos have a slight Emily Bronte/ Jane Austen feel.  

 Elisa Bricker… The movement of the grasses and the wind in the trees are echoed by the movement of the Bride’s hair and dress. The most beautiful part of the day was when we stumbled across a field of bluebells!
